And A Merry Yule

The True Spirit of YuleIt's the shortest day on this part of the planet: 21 December. The Winter Solstice or Yule is here again. Time for Pagans to celebrate and Wicca witches to do their thing. Not only did those pesky Roman Christians rebrand Bacchanalia, but also they tried to stamp out the Brit. Pagan winter festival, which predates Greco-Roman mythology. But Yule survives. The proof is in the holly, mistletoe and Yule logs which adorn our cards. Coxsoft Art wishes all its Pagan readers a Merry Yule and lots of mistletoe. (Its winter berries symbolize life at a time when most sensible plants and animals are dormant. That's why we kiss under it, if we get the chance!)
